So 2014 was a very strange year for me. Clearly I didn’t blog at all, but there wasn’t a lot going on, then there was, then there wasn’t. But what matters is not a lot of travel, for the Traveling Elizabeth. But to summarize in 2014, I was unemployed, then I got a great job. I was in love, and then I wasn’t. I was “homeless” then I got a great apartment. In all, I am doing very well. I never haven’t appreciated all that I have – my life, what I’ve been able to do, all that I am. But 2014 made me truly realize all of the things I have done.
And 2015 is the year where the travel is back, so far I have already booked my trip to Abu Dhabi in April, we have a layover in Paris for 14 hours on the way there and Manchester for 12 on the way back. It looks to be epic already. This year my brother is getting married, and my sister is graduating from college. YAY!
So I thought in this year of 2015 when the travel is BACK I would write down all of the “bucket list” type things I have done so far in my life, because when I think about it it’s pretty amazing.
